I have always been a very avid reader. I loved to read of adventure and mystery novels - when I was a kid Nancy Drew was my idol! I just knew someday I would travel the world as a super sleuth!! Ha!
The very first book I read that really made an impact on my future was given to me by a stranger on an airplane. I was 20 years old and had just started my career as a Sales Representative in the Golf & Tennis industry. It was very much a male dominated industry - men sales reps selling to men golf pro's - so here I was a young, naive girl, fresh out of the corn fields HA HA HA!
I was on a flight to my first sales meeting with the company who was willing to take a chance on me (I was paid 10% commission and I paid 100% of all my expenses - what did they have to lose?) I sat next to an older gentleman and we chatted the entire flight. He gave me some great advice about creating success in sales, he opened up his briefcase and pulled out a beat up copy of The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino and gave it to me. Over the years I have re-read the book several times - I enjoy the philosophy of creating habits that will lead to a life of abundance and success with the message of "do it now"!
Mandino composed The Legend Of The Ten Scrolls. They are:
Scroll I - The Power of Good Habits
Scroll II - Greet Each Day With Love In Your Heart
Scroll III - Persist Until You Succeed
Scroll IV - You Are Natures Greatest Miracle
Scroll V - Live Each Day as if it Were Your Last
Scroll VI - Master Your Emotions
Scroll VII - The Power of Laughter
Scroll VIII - Multiply Your Value Every Day
Scroll IX - All is Worthless Without ActionScroll
X - Pray to God for Guidance
I hope you will read this great classic!
